Check Icon Analysis

The informal word ‘galore’ is used to emphasize that something exits in scarcely believable quantities and is therefore readily available. It is generally used in a positive sense rather than to denote there is too much of something, thus separating it from words such as 'glut’. The term is what is known as a postpositive adjective, meaning it always comes after the word it is describing.
